Staff And Students Celebrate Year End With Student Awards

A number of East Durham College departments have spent the past week celebrating the end of the academic year by hosting a number of student award ceremonies.

Eight award ceremonies took place across the Peterlee campus, with departments such as; Business and IT, hair and beauty, foundation studies, catering, care, sport, ED6 and the college’s specialist construction training centre The Technical Academy held their own event.


The awards saw over 1000 students from all course levels come together to celebrate their hard work across the year with their teachers and tutors.


East Durham College principal, Suzanne Duncan, believes this was a great way to bring the academic year to an end and celebrate all the great work done by students and staff in different departments across the college.


Suzanne said: “It has been another brilliant year here at East Durham College.


“Each course area had the opportunity to celebrate the hard work done in their specific areas across the academic year.


"I would like to say well done to all our students for their hard work throughout the year and congratulations to everyone who received an awards.


“They have been given an incredible foundation from their time at East Durham College which will stand them in good stead as they move forward in their future careers.”
